Nissan has unveiled its 2013 Pathfinder on the automaker’s Facebook page. The showing displayed an SUV with unibody construction, the same construction technique Nissan used on the Pathfinder from 1996 to 2004.
The return to the unibody marks the Pathfinder’s departure from the truck-like build it has sported for the last eight years. The 2013 model year Pathfinder will be a true crossover. According to figures put out by Nissan, its new crossover will weigh 150 pounds less than the 2012 version and will, according to some, feature roomier second and third rows of seats. Word is also that the Pathfinder will be able to tow loads just as heavy as can the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Dodge Durango, Ford Explorer, and something called a Honda Pilot.
